Audio as a medium has the power to spark imagination and provide comfort and solace to listeners. Audible has always been passionate about providing immersive content that entertains and inspires, and to further that commitment, has launched 10 brand new shows on Audible Suno, which are available free of cost.
These shows will be available in Hindi and Hinglish, and have been specially created to provide a wholesome experience to listeners during these trying times when people are at home. The shows cover a variety of genres, including fictionalized stories on people’s experiences during the lockdown, fitness, mindfulness and self-development at home, sit-coms and even mythology, to help listeners immerse themselves and to keep them company.
Kickstarting the slate is Qisse Lockdown Ke with Neelesh Misra, where the noted radio personality takes you on an engaging journey of inspirational and relatable tales about the journey we’re taking with ourselves and our loved ones during these challenging times. Up next is Uncovidable, narrated by Rasika Dugal, which traces a series of WhatsApp Voice Notes between Rasika and her friend, while they’re both in lockdown. To tickle your funny bone, Sourabh Pant takes on every topic under the sun while being stuck at home, ranging from children, chores, maintaining productivity, pulling pranks, and dealing with 24X7 proximity with your spouse. In Sanjeev Kapoor Ke Khazaane, the super chef gives you the scoop on healthy foods to try, simple tips that will lead to a better lifestyle in current circumstances, and ones that can even contribute to a better environment. Walk down memory lane with nostalgia-including classics such as Ramayana, Shivpurana and Mahabharata (narrated by Devdutt Pattanaik).
Shailesh Sawlani, Country Head, Audible India, shares, “What we’re currently witnessing is unprecedented and we want to continue to motivate our listeners and keep them company, especially in these challenging times. No matter where you are or who you’re with, these new, curated audio series, which span a plethora of genres, will keep you company across multiple aspects of daily life — whether it’s mindfulness, fitness or sheer entertainment. We hope for everyone’s wellness and safety, and will continue creating content that entertains and inspires our listeners, no matter what the circumstance.”
